Risk for sudden deafness higher among patients with osteoporosis

April 17, 2015

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss development is increased among people diagnosed with osteoporosis, according to recent study findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

“A growing body of evidence indicates the osteoporosis affects not only bone health, but the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems,” Kai-Jen Tien, MD, of the Chi Mei Medical Center in Taiwan, said in a press release. “Our findings suggest sudden sensorineural hearing loss can be another broader health problem connected to osteoporosis.”
